Script, by more than one hand, is expert Anglo-Saxon minuscule with theta-shaped e and long descenders: a has two forms; c with pendant i could be mistaken for q; ꝺ seems consistently uncial; the form of Ᵹ has a protruding chest and resembles the Arabic numeral 3; i-longa occurs here and there initially; many ascenders are club-shaped, a sign of Continental influence. This type, or something similar to it, is seen in the fragments of Jerome's Letters in Marburg and Cambridge (Mass.) and in other manuscripts including the anonymous commentary on Matthew in the Fulda Priesterseminar and formerly also in Dresden (CLA 2.146 and 12.••146, 8.1181, 1731 and 1732). Small corrections in Caroline minuscule ca. saec. X. Small post-medieval scribbles.
